tv   The Real Story With Gretchen Carlson  FOX News  January 30, 2014 11:00am-12:01pm PST

11:00 am
>> are you calling yourself mary again? >> nice. thomas, atlanta snowplow. he sent us this picture. >> that's hot. >> yeah. >> that's right out of moscow. nice touch. >> there you go. thanks so much for watching. i'm alisyn camerota. >> here is gretchen carlson. ciao for now. we start a with fox news alert. we're awaiting a verdict in the amanda knox retrial happening in italy. hi, everyone. i'm gretchen carlson, welcome to "the real story." amanda knox and her boyfriend waiting for a third court verdict that could find them guilty again. this time amanda is waiting out the decision in the united states. she was arrested in 2007 for the murder of her roommate in italy in 2009. an italian court found knox guilty. then in 2011 an appeals court cleared her and her boyfriend. last march italy's high court
11:01 am
overturned the acquittal order agnew trial and that's where we stand today. jonathan hunt joining me now. jonathan, what do we know about what's going to happen in the court in italy any moment now. >> as if these six years and three months has not been agony enough for everybody, the timing of this verdict seems to keep slipping. we were told right about now we would be getting an announcement from the court clerk. we do not have that at this point. there is some speculation the delivery of the verdict could slip another hour to 3:00 p.m. eastern. the agony goes on for obviously amanda knox and her family, obviously raffaele sollecito, her ex-boyfriend and family. her brother and sister are in the court waiting to hear the verdict like everybody else. this, of course, gretchen, will be the third verdict that we
11:02 am
have had in this case, and it might not necessarily be the end. this could go back to the italian supreme court, gretchen. >> what does this mean for amanda knox now, though? as long as she stays in the united states, does this mean she can't go back to italy, if she's convicted or european union ever. >> if she's found guilty in this new trial, it would go to the supreme court. if they uphold the guilty verdict, then the italian authorities are likely to seek amanda knox's extradition from the u.s. u.s. does have extradition with italy. amanda knox herself said effectively she would become a fugitive from italian law. because of the extradition treaty across the european union, you're absolutely right, she would not be able to go anywhere in europe, any country that has an extradition treaty with europe. >> we are watching and waiting at this hour.
11:03 am
jonathan hunt, thanks so much for that update. meantime that storm still huge news today. atlanta still trying to clean up from the crippling ice storm that shut down the city. military helping clear cars with humvees after a huge traffic nightmare. slippery conditions causing 1200 accidents, stranding 2200 drivers and 3,000 kids spending the night in their schools. now the blame game heating up and the finger pointing begins. live in atlanta, jonathan, what's the latest now? >> well, gretchen, the good news is the kids are back home safely with their parents and interstates back open to traffic. on the sides of the interstate this is a common sight, these abandoned vehicles. some of them sitting on the side of the interstate since tuesday's snowstorm. here you can see the sun is out melting the ice. there's puddles here. officials want abandoned vehicles off the side of the road as quickly as possible so
11:04 am
they can treat the puddles before the temperature goes lower this evening causing more problems. despite the state's sponsz to the storms there's been a lot of finger pointing about the preparation for the storm. early on state officials blamed forecasters say they didn't give enough warning this was truly going to be a severe snowstorm. but meteorologies were pushing back saying they did give ample warning. earlier in the day here is what the governor had to say about the response. listen. >> you need to talk to the business leaders in this community. they heard the same predictions we did. we don't have power to tell them to tell their employees not to go to work. we don't have power to tell school systems, don't send your buses on the road, don't send children to school. everybody making judgment calls about the weather made the same
11:05 am
judgment calls i did and the city of atlanta did. >> state officials have been doing a lot of soul searching in the wake of this. they have re-evaluated everything that happened. they said they will continue to discuss their response at a news conference just moments ago governor nathan diehl said going forward when there are future storm warnings, the state is going to take the warning very seriously and act aggressively even if it means shutting down roads and taking extreme precaution in a storm that doesn't come. the lesson learned here is they need to air on the side of caution. gretchen. >> all right. jonathan serrie picking up the mess down there. thanks so much. new developments concerning upcoming winter olympics in sochi. british officials warning their athletes not to wear team gear and keep a low profile. this as athletes set to arrive 48 hours from now. the u.s. team also received a similar warning. one of our best and brightest is trying to keep it all in perspective. >> i know we'll be in good hands.
11:06 am
the security i know is pretty tight. i think we'll be safe inside. >> meantime security not the only concern. cost overruns nothing short of comical. we're talking $50 billion over budget. that's three times more than all other olympics combined. for perspective salt lake city games cost $2 billion. brand-new arrests connected to last month's deadly terror attacks in russia that killed 34 people and injured dozens more. two brothers detained in damage stan for helping bombers travel to volgograd, which is about 600 miles from also identifying two a member of jihadist group in damage stan. trying to determine who actually organized the whole attack. meantime here in the u.s. attorney general eric holder telling senate lawmakers he plans to meet a friday deadline on whether to seek the death penalty for boston bombing
11:07 am
suspect dzhokhar tsarnaev, he and his brother planting a bomb and later killing a police officer. check out this kaiser poll finding uninsured americans unfavorable views of the health care law now outnumber favorable views by two to one marriage, 24% to 47%. all this a brand-new study shows wait times for doctor's appointments going way up as obamacare is rolling out. charles cook, a staff writer for national review, he's my guest in the studio today. great to see you, charles. >> thanks for having me. >> the average wait time now, this study ended the end of 2013, who knows what happens in january, 18 days for specialty doctors in the united states. >> the study ended in september but we've seen the same thing in
11:08 am
massachusetts. this is an obvious supply and demand situation. we've added more people to medicaid rules and insurance to a bill that really wasn't -- was silent on the matter of supply. all it does, it increased the demand. we can argue as to why that is and why america finds itself in a situation with a shortage of general practitioners which it does. they still got together and passed a bill that does nothing about supply. of course wait times are going to go up. >> we heard from a lot of doctors when this was rolling out and the bill was signed, there aren't enough doctors to meet the demand. if you look at massachusetts, as you talk about, they had affordable care act a few years before it became national law, boston the wait there to see a specialized doctor, 45 days. >> absolutely. this is the case in the country i'm from originally. whenever government get involved
11:09 am
in this wait time goes up. markets are pretty good at sorting this out. root cause congress didn't consider supply at all. they just considered demand. the two interact fairly predictally and of course we're where we are. >> another report came out that will scare stuff, special if they live in california with privacy information. apparently 43 convicted criminals are working as obamacare navigators in that state. >> i should say at the outset as a rule i think we overpunish people for crimes they committed in the past. we take away their vote, guns and sometimes ruin their lives know too long. this is an issue where privacy is of paramount importance. a lot of personal information, financial information that's being pushed through the system. some of the people who are working within the system really have some developed skills. >> you're talking about repeat forgery offenses, committed welfare fraud, shoplifting, seven navigators with multiple conviction.
11:10 am
if you're talking social security, personal information, finance information, if these are people who committed crimes before, likelihood, could happen again. >> some are repeat offenders and have developed real skills in this area, real criminal skills. the question is you have a million and a half unemployed people in the state of california. can we really not find people who don't have histories of corrupting private information? seems odd. >> wasn't part of the background check, then the answer might be nope. charles cook, always good to see you, thanks. chaos in walmart parking lot as a drunk driver across the pavement. field for 2016 wide open, will jeb bush go against the wishes of his mom and make a run for the third member of the white house? the most overlooked candidates who may be flying under the radar as well. an outrageous crackdown on a young girl making cupcakes in

general. there are a lot of folks who would really enjoy seeing a strong bush coming back into the race and being able to really bring people together and show his experience having led the state of florida, which is one of the key states obviously for a presidential race. he's still very popular in the state. i think it really sort of breathe has energy that republicans need to have one candidate they can come behind. >> it's interesting. he has to get one person on his side. that's his mom. right now she doesn't want him to run. rand paul and ted cruz on hannity addressing the issue of intraparty fighting. >> both of you have had an intramural struggle with prominent republicans. you invited governor chris christie to a beer summit. >> we're one big happy family now. >> under the bridge. >> we're all getting together now. >> no pun intended.

11:36 am
family to an agenda, concrete policy that will appeal to their base as well as american public in general. we'll see what happens. republicans are meeting in maryland. john boehner said they want to work together a lot needs to be done before the midterm elections to show republicans have come together. certainly if we're talking presidential nominees, either paul or cruz needs to step up and be the leader who says i'm bringing the party together if they think they will get nominees. >> it will be interesting to see how it all develops. thanks for your time. >> great to see you. fox news alert for you now because fox news confirming that president obama and president clinton will both speak to senate democrats next week. the caucus holding its retreat then. both presidents serving as headline speakers. this is very, very interesting that president obama would call on president bill clinton to once again come back into the fold. they are going to try to bolster support for those facing tough

midterm elections. president obama has pn on a pr blitz trying to turn approval poll numbers on the state of the union. president clinton stepped up his own efforts alps appearing in ads and fundraisers for democratic candidates. you can't leave this story without talking about his wife, hillary clinton, who may, in fact, want to run for president as well. syria being called top haven for islamic militants. top spy chief saying the war-torn country has being a magnet for extremists with more than 25,000 of them inside the border. this all coming on the heels of a report showing assad regime has shipped out less than 5% of chemical arsenal for destruction in a ship offshore and it's way behind schedule. concerned veterans for america, pete, america should be concerned with that information coming out about syria, correct? >> very much so.
11:38 am
there's 110,000 fighters in syria, the report says, 26,000 they call extremists. i don't think they are christian extremists or buddhist but islamic extremists in syria in fixed training camps. we're talking about something that looks like a pre9/11 afghanistan where they are able to stage and plot and train. a lot of people coming to syria says the report looking elsewhere for an attack. not just instability and vacuum in syria, created by quif indicating u.s. policy both there and across the border, implication for exporting that training elsewhere around the word. you talked about equivocating. talk about when the president was going to strike syria, no, let me ask congress. then interestingly enough decided not to. you have a state department today saying military action in syria was never taken off the table. where does that put us? >> tell that to assad.
11:39 am
once putin swept in and took over foreign policy and said oh, no, he'll get rid of nuclear options, military acwas off the table. we handcuffed ourselves hoping he would get rid of chemical weapons. we found 4% have been removed. he's eight weeks behind the time line. we say military option on the table. maybe. it ought be. we walked ourselves a long way back. assad has been able to consolidate power in the meantime, legitimacy in the international community. you know who pays the most attention? iran. supporting that regime and buying time towards their pursuit of a nuclear weapon. >> pete with the analysis on what could be a debacle in syria. thanks, pete. >> thanks, gretchen. >> a miracle in syria captured on tape. 14-month-old girl pulled alive from a pile of rubble after surviving an airstrike near her home in aleppo.

11:46 am
men who were selling bogus tickets for the super bowl days away from it. i'm joined by geraldo rivera. great to see you. this is a bombshell lawsuit. one thing this gear is being sold. but another thing to link potentially eli manning to it. >> giants quarterback, two-time super bowl champion. his brother peyton is leading the denver broncos into the current super bowl. he has a wonderful reputation. but apparently if these allegations are to be believed he was part of a huge scheme within the new york giants organization to create these bogus artifacts. this is the helmet i wore in the 2004 rookie season, when it wasn't. this the helmet i wore 2008 champion. that's the helmet in the pro bowl hall of fame. this suit a little it's fraud.

11:48 am
this is huge. you can just imagine players around, this is correct, give me one of those battered up helmets, the equipment guy. eli signs it and says i wore it this or that game. peyton manning was asked about it. he's unaware of the allegations. eli might be as well. >> the response bs one, you are correct. in other words, that was a verification in the first e-mail that this type of thing allegedly was going on, geraldo. >> documentary evidence. >> as you mentioned, this is a huge business. apparently it even involves the dry cleaners to one point where they were part of the whole thing. they beat up jerseys and other items at the behest, according to them, of the locker room manager. even the dry cleaner was making it look torn. >> in 2001 this plaintiff,
11:49 am
indicted for bogus memorabilia, charges against him were dropped when feds presented with evidence that now makes up the sum total of his civil lawsuit, this racketeering. the fed said, wait a minute, this isn't the bad guy. something else going on here. now the guy accused was being aggressive and he's suing them for civil racketeering. the giants are going to be reeling. in context of joyous news, here we are, metlife stadium, gathering for super bowl. >> coincidental to file a lawsuit two days before? i think it was coincidental. >> how did it happen? >> i just don't know. you've been in the business long enough to know that. have a fantastic weekend. we'll be watching your show. >> thank you. a whole lot more going on reading, writing and arithmetic at the elementary school, why they snatched food from hungry
